What Makes A Good Interior?

So what makes a good interior?

It is a balance of incorporating originality into a space that rightfully serves its purpose. The way in which you design is a reflection through your work. It is exploited in a way that is irreversable once it is there. Therefore it is essential that, so long as you keep in mind that the interior is suitable for functional use, that your originality becomes favourable to the market who intend to use it. If an interior is too ambiguous and people do not instantly know what purpose it serves then it becomes irrelevant; thus becoming obsolete; regardless of the time and labour which went into it.

If you are a good designer, you will be aware of this from the beginning of the design process. A well thought out design requires time, research and patience.

The psychology of a space plays an integral part in Interior Design. It is important that the client finds the space to be comfortable, accessible and doesn't provoke negative emotion; keeping in mind that it can also be visually captivating.

A good interior is about balancing the necessary and eliminating the irrelevant. You don't want something that clutters or distracts what you want the user to see. Never settle for the first idea or ideas because they enable you to develop new ones and further a flow of creativity. Here you are able to identify and eliminate the more obscure or unnecessary elements which tend to distract from what you aim to achieve.

From a public perception, it could be said that a good interior is one that follows the tradition of being spacially acceptable, one that is sustainable and one that serves a functional purpose. However, from a designers perspective, it should also leave a lasting impression; aging with beauty, originality and dignity. For a designer to have created something that is considered a timeless masterpiece is an achievement.
